When it comes to makeup application, I always try to use as little powder to set the foundation as possible. Too much powder looks heavy on the skin, and isn’t very modern looking. The more you can see skin showing through, the fresher (and younger) you’ll look.
MAKE UP FOR EVER has an alternative to powder when it comes to setting makeup, it’s undetectable on the skin and creates a barrier between the makeup and external factors like pollution and heat that take away your makeup’s ability to last.
I just mist the face completely (even eyes to help shadow stay) from about 10 inches out and press the liquid into the skin with my fingers or a sponge. Doing so sets and keeps the makeup looking fresh for an entire day. No fading, no streaking, no separating, it just holds your foundation perfectly in place. It can be used everyday or just for weddings, special events, photo shoots, or when you really need your makeup to last.

I'm a big fan of MUF way better than MAC
